"Sharkdog" - Nickelodeon Animated Series



A few years ago, I submitted a pitch bible to Nickelodeon Global Animated Shorts Program and "Sharkdog" was selected out of 850 pitches worldwide. Since then we have went on to produce a series of 20 episodes, 90 sec comedy shorts, exploring the adventures of a boy named Max and his special pet-sidekick Sharkdog.

Now screening on the Nickelodeon Play App!

"Sharkdog has a lot of silly humour and a lot of heart. What better time to launch this than just before National Day as we celebrate a Singapore-first for Nickelodeon."

"Hardboiled: Art of the Steal"





At long last, the Pilot episode of HARDBOILED: The Art Of The Steal is officially up on Youtube! 

I personally really loved this project. It's about 2 young-wannabe detectives, Benny, a head strong girl who's very determined, organised and goal oriented and Hammond, a massive slab of ham who's more... in touch with is feelings. Together they aspire to be the greatest detectives of all times. But all great things start off small and that's where Benny and Hammond find themselves setting up their little detective studios in the town of Sunnyside. They struggle to make ends meet, taking up small cases to build their reputation till one day they chance upon the Case of a life time: A massive Art heist, orchestrated by a well-connected Villain hiding in the shadows stumps even the police. Unfazed, Benny and Hammond hop right on the case, banking everything they've got to solve it - it's all or nothing this time!

Below are excerpts from the Thumbnails stage is where I plan and decide what are the key shots, where the Dialogue goes, Camera Floorplan and Framing I want.  At this stage, most of the acting is not fleshed out yet and drawings are much looser.
